comment Is there a good benchmark for virtual memory performance?
Thanks! STREAM is my go-to benchmark for memory and definitely a good way to indirectly measure this sort of thing. Not sure if it's really sensible to look for something as low-level as I'm interested, but I'm a fan of microbenchmarks :-)

comment How to beat GRUB2 into submission?
Thanks! I have tried a number in the past, but that number was '14' and did not work. However, a lower-ordered number (e.g. '2') does work. This lines up with the first-match hypothesis. I generally try to stay away from using numbers to avoid the non-determinism inherent with using automatically enumerated identifiers.

comment How to beat GRUB2 into submission?
Thanks! I'm now trying to find a way to incorporate this into /etc/grub.d as this is a shared machine and I don't want someone clobbering my config by updating the kernel, etc...

@ElliottFrisch - I miss lilo, reminds me of my much simpler slackware days

comment How to beat GRUB2 into submission?
Is it possible to script (i.e. not using sed or perl) booting into different kernels using syslinux? I'm looking to switch back and forth from Xen programmatically.

comment md raid1 ext3 and 4k sectors slow with directory operations
Okay, will check when I get home. I'm using ext3 because I'm still (possibly unjustifiably so) concerned with the reliability of ext4.

comment md raid1 ext3 and 4k sectors slow with directory operations
I should also add that the lights on the eSATA drives never turn off, md is keeping them quite busy (though I am running things that are likely producing log files)

comment Is it possible to view media on the console?
Those packages write to the framebuffer (hence the fb) via a graphics driver, not strictly the Linux text terminal driver - but it is the "graphics console" in one sense (not sure if that counts as tty). Either way, great find :-)

comment can't ssh into remote host with root, password incorrect
what distribution? Also, are you logging in on a local terminal or trying to ssh as root to localhost? PermitRootLogin doesn't care if you start at localhost.

comment puppet certificate catching error
seems like an ntp server is running on the master. Can you install ntp on the agent and configure it to point to the master (e.g. server MASTERIP in /etc/ntp.conf)?

+1 for the portable method

comment puppet certificate catching error
Are you running ntp? If not, can you run ntpdate pool.ntp.org on both servers?

comment Can I share /usr/local between multiple Linux distributions?
If you're doing a bind mount of /boot, I don't believe that would affect the bootloader unless you try running grub-install or update-grub (depending on the version) and it reads from the newly mounted one. (see linux.die.net/man/8/grub-install). But overall, I believe I have gotten away with running one /boot partition. You will probably want to look at this guide: garron.me/en/linux/… or something similar for dual-booting two Linux installations.

comment X.org: two 'Screens' on one 'Device'
I haven't done this with AMD cards successfully, but I have used Nvidia's TwinView to get two separate x screens

comment SSH login via IPv6 successfull while using IPv4 to the same host yields “Permission denied”
Just curious, does this look any different if you use public key auth?

comment Communication to device is lost when network starts on boot up?
Does the problem persist when you go straight to ttyUSB0? I'm not quite sure of your use case. Can you give an example of how you're opening the socket on both sides - either with a code snippet or equivalent MWE (maybe something with socat and telnet)?

comment SELinux: Can I disable copying of certain files?
No worries, it's not easy to come up with all the possibilities on your own. That's why we have stackexchange :-) Let us know how it goes!

comment SELinux: Can I disable copying of certain files?
Not really an SELinux expert, but if I can read the file but not copy it, would cat file | ssh otherserver 'cat > stolenfile' still work? Are you using rbash or some sort of restricted environment?

Can you post your partiton layout and the output of cat /boot/grub/device.map?

comment Install another PHP version. Fedora 17
You will also need to run make and make install (not sure if you did that already). But jordanm's answer is where it should be.
